Old gate piers to east of Gloster Hill Farmhouse


Gatepiers, C17. Cut sandstone. Two square piers with attached scroll-topped
jambs. Faces of piers have panels with worn carving; pulvinated frieze and
moulded cornice below finial formed from four diagonally-set scrolly brackets
with fruit and flower designs. Inner (west) faces of piers have domed niches
with keystones.

This was the main entrance to Gloster Hill, a substantial C17 house demolished
in 1939; many architectural features were re-used at Dunstan Hall in Craster
parish (q.v.).
